ABC at a Glance

Get to know The Applied Behavior Center for Autism

We Were Founded by an Autism Mother

ABC was founded in 1997 when CEO, Sherry Quinn’s son Michael was diagnosed with autism. At the time, autism was a rare diagnosis. In fact, Michael was the only child in his entire school district with autism. After doing extensive research, Sherry realized that Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy was the best possible treatment for her son. At the time, that service was not offered anywhere within the state of Indiana. Sherry set out to change that.

We are Indiana’s Largest & Longest Running ABA Therapy Provider

ABC has grown to be the largest and longest running ABA therapy provider in the state of Indiana. We are proud to offer 7 outpatient facilities throughout the state. This includes our Indy North Center, Early Childhood Center, Carmel Center, Indy West Center, Greenwood Center, Richmond Center and our Terre Haute Center (located inside the Terre Haute Children’s Museum). Each of our centers offers a unique blend of amenities including custom-crafted indoor gyms and individual therapy rooms.

We Offer More than ABA Therapy

At ABC, we offer a wide variety of high-quality services. These include: ABA Therapy, Behavior Consulting, Speech Therapy (lead by duel-certified SLPs/Behavior Analysts), Occupational Therapy, Diagnostic Testing, and Indoor Swim Lessons.

We Serve a Very Broad Age Range

ABC proudly specializes in serving clients ages 2 and older.

We Offer Specialized Programming for Teens & Adults

Our LIFE Program (Learning in Functional Environments) serves ages 10 and older. LIFE is a full-day program that uses the science of ABA to teach skills that promote independence and quality of life. Children and teens in this program learn to work on functional skills within a simulated home environment and real life, community-based settings.

Important skills such as budgeting money, grocery shopping, peer interactions, doing laundry, hygiene and more are worked on within this program.

This program is offered at our Indy North, Greenwood, Indy West and Carmel locations.

We Provide Full Insurance Management Services (Free of Charge)

At ABC, we understand that there are several stresses and pressures that come with searching for the right services for your child. Sorting through insurance struggles should not be another stressor added to that list. Because of this, our trained team of experts handles all insurance processing on behalf of our clients. This is a service that we offer to all families completely free of charge.

We Also Offer Home Therapy Programs

ABC offers services across a variety of locations. Although center-based is our most popular option, we also offer school-based, community-based and home-based programs. Our home programs can be offered within 20 miles of our locations.
